Shinya Arino, the put-upon host of Game Center CX
, is also a member of a comedy duo called Yoiko
along with Masaru Hamaguchi. They starred in a television special in December of last year called Mujintou Seikatsu
(Deserted Island Life
) in which the two of them survived on an island for three days. That sounds like a perfectly reasonable basis for a minigame collection, right?
Namco Bandai assessed the situation similarly, and thus Tottado!~ Yoiko no Mujintou Seikatsu (Yoiko's Deserted Island Life
) was born. The minigames
involve survival-related tasks -- building and maintaining a shelter, catching fish, and cooking -- with lots of wacky comedy faces.
"I caught a fish WACKY COMEDY FACE!"
We don't need to tell you how likely we think this is to leave Japan.
